Administrator access

Klein Muçi@sqwikiquote

I've been a temporary admin for almost a year now and would like to be permanent. Also, if possible, I'd like to request interface administrator rights. We are a really small community there and currently I do all the admin jobs around and initially I've asked for bureaucrat rights but I was told we couldn't have a local bureaucrat since we're not that big a community so at least, having interface administrator rights would give me some other tools helping to look after the project. Do check my contributions on that project and also the Recent changes there if you want to make sure I mean no harm whatsoever. - Klein Muçi (talk) 14:22, 27 May 2019 (UTC)

PS: I read that I need two-factor authentication enabled for interface administration. Can I have a little technical help on how to do that? As a matter of fact, I have that kind of log in enabled in all my web accounts but the procedures on Wikimedia seems a little bit more complex than the usual websites, as far as I saw. - Klein Muçi (talk) 15:52, 27 May 2019 (UTC)
I was able to enable the two-factor authentication. - Klein Muçi (talk) 03:16, 30 May 2019 (UTC)
@Ruslik0: can I have an answer too? Is there a specific reason I must wait? It's been 4 days already. - Klein Muçi (talk) 13:10, 31 May 2019 (UTC)

Can you escape@ro.wikiquote

The only administrator has not been active since February 2017(which is more than 2 years ago), there are a lot of spam articles and I want to clear up the mess and possibly revive this. There are also no active members, so I can’t make a discussion on the local wikiquotes. With respect, Can you escape (talk) 18:11, 25 May 2019 (UTC)

can you link to some of these spam articles? They can easily be dealt with by a global sysop. Praxidicae (talk) 19:52, 25 May 2019 (UTC)
Sure!, , ,プレモノ_-_Yahoo!_JAPAN_PR企画 , , .There are most likely more, though ro.wikiquotes needs an administrator(even if it’s only temporary) to put things back on track. As I specified above, the current admin hasn’t made 1 edit in more than 2 years. The activity of the community is close to zero. Can you escape (talk) 20:17, 25 May 2019 (UTC)
I’m sure you can understand why people are skeptical given your very short tenure here. Praxidicae (talk) 21:17, 25 May 2019 (UTC)
Absolutely! I don’t think abusing would be a problem since the wiki is always being monitored. Can you escape (talk) 07:14, 26 May 2019 (UTC)
  •   Comment You have been here two weeks, and otherwise have no evident history. Yet you are not a wiki-novice, so I would like to understand your previous wiki personalities. Much of wikiquote needs is activity and organisation, not administrators from what I can see. Requests for administration can be posted at SRM. [Noting that I have handled the deletion requests.]  — billinghurst sDrewth 07:30, 26 May 2019 (UTC)
Thank you for handling the deletion requests! I am not a wiki novice indeed but it’s just that i’m a pretty fast learner. You can’t organize wikiquotes when vandals create useless pages and destroy others. During these 7 days i’ve done a lot of useful modifications to the site that will make the user experience more pleasant. There are also still, a lot of useless with spam/vulgar content, I have marked the ones I noticed with the „delete” template. There is still a lot of backend implementations that need to be done that i’ll be taking care of this week. With respect, Can you escape (talk) 11:36, 1 June 2019 (UTC)

Ruslik0 see this entry on cuwiki and my comment on their unblock request. This user appears to be evading a global lock based on the data and the cross-wiki behavioural overlap. TonyBallioni (talk) 15:41, 2 June 2019 (UTC)
I’m sorry that we were not able to conclude this on my talk page, I do understand your concerns but as I have stated there, my contributions were all beneficial, nor do I condone vandalism in any way. Ruslik0, please do not remove my permissions and closely watch the contributions I will make at ro.wikiquote and we will then be able to see if I am indeed in need of a global lock. With respect, Can you escape (talk) 16:00, 2 June 2019 (UTC)
The odds of there being that much coincidence in the world of three accounts overlapping in the way you do and sharing the same technical details approaches zero. TonyBallioni (talk) 16:07, 2 June 2019 (UTC)

User Paputx@ca.wikibooks

See the previous request and its linked voting; it would be preferable a long extension of the admin rights (at least 1-2 years). Thank you in advance, Xavi Dengra (MESSAGES) 09:41, 13 June 2019 (UTC)

You should start a new vote. Ruslik (talk) 13:39, 16 June 2019 (UTC)
Paputx, Xavi Dengra, how is it going? --Base (talk) 17:02, 22 June 2019 (UTC)
@Ruslik0 and Base: No, we shouldn't start a new voting. This decision was taken by unanimity in Dec 2018 and not for just a period of 3 or 6 months. Every wiki should have a sovereignty, and not restrict admin access' criteria to what Meta stewards feel free for a subjective deadline. This has happenned in Catalan projects beforehand: denials of admin and bureacrat rights, continuous changes driven by Meta and promoted by the WMF with very narrow consensus and few participation of previous notice. Meta is just getting a burden for small and difficult to run small projects, of which those new and dedicated members just want to improve the content without pending all the time of such superstructures that are not investing any efforts in improve the interface or quality of projects that are not anglocentric or Wikipedia. Xavi Dengra (MESSAGES) 18:14, 22 June 2019 (UTC)
Given that Paputx was granted adminship for the first time and the community at that time was small, I agree with Ajraddatz on the granting of temporary adminship and I would have, personally, done the same, as stated in our handbook. —MarcoAurelio (talk) 19:19, 22 June 2019 (UTC)
Xavi Dengra, I know what it feels like. That being said as stewards we need to ensure that wikis have permissions delegated to people that are supported by the communities. At the current size of cawikibooks, with less than 20 people ever having made 500 edits it is not a wiki with a big community. I do not feel confident enough about giving them permanent rights after only 3 months they held them. Given support Paputx will get adminship for longer term this time, but that is it. The best way you can help this is to have cawikibooks grow. Have you considered doing some outreach (perhaps with Amical Wikimedia help) to get more people involved in the project? --Base (talk) 19:28, 22 June 2019 (UTC)
Paputx is a trusted user, and the community at that time decided to make him administrator. I understand that stewards have a big responsability in this sense, but global policies shouldn't override local community consensus in this matter (and his candidature didn't specify a time limit, so it was understood as having a permanent duration). He hasn't caused any conflicts during his time as administrator, so I don't see why he can't be renewed without a new vote. As for your suggestion, promoting our sister projects is part of our strategic plan for the next years, so yes, that's something we are planning to do (In fact, Paputx already organised an edit-a-thon for Wikibooks a month ago or so, which led to the writing of a whole new book; I'll be doing a follow-up event during July). --Unapersona (talk) 15:20, 23 June 2019 (UTC)
As Unapersona said, and given the fact that is a really small community, reaching an agreement for a new administrator means that the editors expect a stable task -and not just one for three months. We might not expect indefinite rights, but neither votings every three months to ratify positions, because this erosions the resilience and stability of a small group like ours. When I referred to the superstructures, intrusion in well-organised decisions, and lack of sovereignty I meant exactly that behind every project, Amical Wikimedia stays awake that there is no a major problem in any sister project. And that thanks to our proximity to the small communities, most of the main editors in every Catalan Wikimedia project is also a member of the organisation. Since Paputx is admin and one year even before, he has carried out different workshops, meetings to release free-licensed materials, and promoted new activities on Wikibooks. Also as an admin for 10 years in ca.wikibooks, I wouldn't ask his renewal if I was not absolutely sure of this reliability. That's why, from all my respect to your volunteer task, I disagree on the stewards' assumptions: because every community has an own context and the decision should be directly taken from the sovereign result of each voting. Xavi Dengra (MESSAGES) 18:57, 23 June 2019 (UTC)
  •   Done for another seven months. I commented on the last request that I was fine with extending access, when no reply was given I did not implement the extension. I've reviewed the sysop actions of the user in question and find no errors, and noting the continued community support I am happy to extend this. We give temporary access as a form of risk management, and here there is very little risk as demonstrated by the past three months and the previous discussion. After the (combined) one year period, please start a new discussion and we can extend for further time or assign indefinite adminship depending on the case.

Removal of Global rename for Boing! said Zebedee

I was granted the global rename right largely to help with block reviews and unblocking at the English Wikipedia (I had intended to help with the global queues too, but there are plenty of people there who are quicker than me). I am no longer an admin at the English Wikipedia and so will no longer be working on the unblock requests queue, and I therefore have no further need for the global rename permission.

Accipiter Q. Gentilis

Removal of Template editor rights for Accipiter Q. Gentilis (and transfer to Accipiter Gentilis Q.).

Reason: Accipiter Q. Gentilis is my old user account I no longer have access to. This current account (Accipiter Gentilis Q.) is used by me from May 2019.--Accipiter Gentilis Q. (talk) 18:20, 4 June 2019 (UTC)

Why did lose access to your account? Ruslik (talk) 08:27, 5 June 2019 (UTC)
I locked myself my account with a random password in the context of a potential threat, associated with the possibility of exposing my personal confidential data to a group, interested in these details. -- Accipiter Gentilis Q. (talk) 13:49, 5 June 2019 (UTC)
Now, I have found a solution to return formally without the possibility of exposure of these personal data being relevant, in the report with the existence of the interests who could exist three months ago.Accipiter Gentilis Q. (talk) 14:00, 5 June 2019 (UTC)
Your, first, should move your request to SRGREN. Ruslik (talk) 17:22, 5 June 2019 (UTC)

OK thanks. My objective is to be able to prove that I am the one who claims to be faster, exclusively at the request of a administrator, as was mentioned on the discussion page whose link is above. From a similar previous episode, I understand that this goal is not accessible through Checkuser, except in the context of malicious changes. From the same episode I noticed that it was possible through a request like the one above.

So, the subject of my request is thus to prove that I am operating the two accounts mentioned above, and you would have been able to certify this by comparing my current or past edits of my account, in in a similar manner as the Checkuser does. Does it use anything to move the request to SRGREN, or I waste the time of others, unnecessarily ? I ask because it has been more than 3 months since the last change of the Accipiter Q. Gentilis account, and from what I understand the data is not kept for more than 3 months. On the other hand, there are other ways to get the same, such as a direct request addressed to a administrator, via an email from an address already known as belonging to the previous account. Finally, the idea was not to directly involve anyone on ro.wikipedia in any way.

I apologize, but all this was done as a direct request from someone else, as was written on the discussion page mentioned above, to prove my identity.Accipiter Gentilis Q. (talk) 18:28, 5 June 2019 (UTC)

As rowiki has multiple administrators that are capable of maintaining the template editor usergroup, this really should be handled locally. — xaosflux Talk 00:32, 6 June 2019 (UTC)
I solved both problems. Thank you.Accipiter Gentilis Q. (talk) 08:29, 6 June 2019 (UTC)

Dear stewards, I would like to extend my adminship in ace.wikipedia. If it is possible to be given, I request my extension for two years. Thank you! ··· 🌸 Rachmat04 · 07:27, 2 June 2018 (UTC)

Theklan, KRLS & Xabier Cañas@euwikisource

User:KRLS asked for a temporal administrator flag of 6 months, to make some technical stuff and get euwikisource completely ready. Theklan (talk) 08:48, 5 June 2018 (UTC)

Our process is designed to handle one person per one section. Please split the section, to make it as one person per section. — regards, Revi 10:06, 5 June 2018 (UTC)
Fixed that for you. --MF-W 10:51, 5 June 2018 (UTC)

Please, renew the sysop flag for 1 year. (Note: The user changed his user name from Omaislam to إسلام, so you can found the previous sysop flag in arwikiquote here) --Alaa :)..! 01:40, 9 June 2018 (UTC)

  Done Ruslik (talk) 07:28, 9 June 2018 (UTC)
  Granted for 1 year to expire on 2019-06-09. For the completeness. — regards, Revi 08:23, 12 June 2018 (UTC)


We would like to request permanent admin access for user Pcastellina. His acceptance of my nomination of him can be found in this edit: [4]. Thanks in advance! :) --OosWesThoesBes (talk) 10:24, 15 June 2018 (UTC)

Only temporal access is warranted under these circumstances. Ruslik (talk) 18:38, 16 June 2018 (UTC)
Could you please be more specific about what these circumstances mean? Also, this page isn't very clear on when permanent admin access is to be granted. I recall another page was more clear about this, but it doesn't seem to be linked from here. --OosWesThoesBes (talk) 09:28, 17 June 2018 (UTC)
Size of the community. Whether it is appropriate to grant permasysop or tempsysop is currently left to Stewards discretion. SH#Administrator and bureaucrat rights. — regards, Revi 12:14, 17 June 2018 (UTC)
Alright, in that case, I suggest granting him temporary admin access for a year. --OosWesThoesBes (talk) 08:19, 19 June 2018 (UTC)
  Granted for 1 year to expire on 2019-06-19. To prolong your (interface) adminship, please start another election a few days before your temporary access expires, and after a week post your request again to this page. Thanks. Ruslik (talk) 20:33, 19 June 2018 (UTC)
Thank you! I'll notify the community. --OosWesThoesBes (talk) 08:49, 20 June 2018 (UTC)


Note: User:Chabi is the same individual as User:Katxis. He has returned to an older user account that he was recently able to access for the first time in a while. He has been an admin on this project previously, so should get the rights for 12–18 months this time. StevenJ81 (talk) 13:38, 22 June 2018 (UTC)

  Granted for 1 year to expire on 2019-06-24. Ruslik (talk) 20:08, 24 June 2018 (UTC)


My temporary admin access expired for three times. So, after community discussion I would like to request permanent admin access for me. - Satpal Dandiwal (talk) 17:23, 18 June 2018 (UTC)
